Steps Forward in Senegal

Learning life with friends in a new context

It's another season of adjustment and transition for me, as I learn how to live in Senegal, yet apart from Céline. Continue to pray with me for good friends and good communication with Céline in France. I'm thankful for the opportunities God has already given me to connect with local churches, expats, and new friends.

Location of Mbour, Senegal

EMI Senegal Office

Opening in Mbour - January 2017

Our team has selected the city of Mbour for our office location. Home to more than 605,000 people, the city is located about 80 km from the capital Dakar and just 30 km from Senegal's new international airport. The city developped around a titanium mine and is also sustained by fishing and tourism industries. We're excited for the calmer pace of life, connections with ministries and churches in the immediate area, as well as having better access into central Senegal. Thanks for your prayers for our decision-making process over the past couple of years!

Togo Hospital Project

Listening to vision and Designing hope in Tsiko 

I had the privilege of leading a team of designers to Tsiko, Togo earlier this month to work with a hospital ministry for their master planning and future development. The Hôpital Baptiste Biblique (an ABWE outreach) is a 40-bed hospital with plans to more than double in capacity and to train local doctors and surgeons. Our team listened to their staff's dreams and then prepared architectural and engineering plans for their growth. I'm spending the next few weeks at our MENA office helping prepare the report and plans.

Immediately following the project trip, we hosted a networking event in the capital Lomé for local design professionals. I was greatly encouraged by the presence of 13 Togolese architects, engineers, and technicians who were all able to meet each other and to learn about ways to connect with EMI in West Africa for God's glory. Thanks for your continued prayers as we reach out to and work with local designers to meet physical and spiritual needs around the region!

Life in Jesus

Viens à Moi : Je te donne la vie | Come to Me : I give you life

In a recent Sunday service, a Senegalese man stood and cried out for people to come to the Father through Jesus. I was touched by this exclamation and have continued praying that God's Spirit draws more people to Himself through our witness of living with Jesus. Please join me in this prayer for so many who do not know the Life-giver yet.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)

Prayer & Praise

  • Praise God for my arrival in Senegal and our team's decision to base the office in Mbour! Continue to pray for connections and housing for our office and the families joining me in August.
  • Praise God for Céline and my commitment to pursue marriage! Pray for wisdom and grace in our relationship, especially as we meet each other's family later this year.
  • Pray for partners to cover a one-time cost of about $2000 for me to attend our world staff conference in CO this summer and an ongoing $100 monthly deficit, as well as funding for a vehicle in Senegal.
  • Lift up Céline's continued studies for exams in May and her applications for a US visa and for French citizenship.
  • Pray for the Wright and Hoffman families as they continue their French studies in France, and for the Perrys as they study French in Quebec.
